Reason for creating facility

Area in which students are expected to have enhanced learning

1

Up flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB).

The topic is covered in theory part but not covered practical exercise. The set- up is used for demonstration

Environmental Engineering

2

Three Reservoir problem set up (year 2015-16)

A three-reservoir problem in hydraulics is difficult to imagine and therefore to understand. To enhance the understanding of the students a three- reservoir model set up is developed in which change in water levels of three different reservoirs can be studied

Hydraulics and water resources engineering

3

Electrical Analogy for determination of flow net

In Civil Engineering a particular study is carried out for flow below the weir using electrical analogy, the instrument of which is not readily available in the market. The said instrument is therefore developed in the institute itself for better performance of the experiment

4

Discharge measurement of  set up

In available equipment the flow is not developed as the pipe length is less than 35 times diameter of pipe before the venturi meter or orifice meter (as per Indian standard). The instrument developed in the laboratory caters for this requirement giving better results of calibration

5

Development of boundary over flat in wind tunnel for horizontal movement

Such an instrument is not available in market and the understanding of Boundary layer concept improves by actually observing its development. The instrument is developed from this perspective

6

Modified J-Ring (MJR) Test

Adjustable MJR Test

New patentable tests developed to accesses the passing ability of Self-Compacting Concrete; a rational and reliable substitute to ASTM J-Ring tests. Impart rational understanding and importance of creative thinking among students.
